    Snake Blinders

    ..., as I've heard them called, are all cosmetic. Unless they really blind snakes so when you step out they can't see you.

    Rust traps and not really needed.

    they are for pissing off owners when they start to cause rust and when they start to look like crap :O

    no real purpose - cosmetic only. if you pull them, you will have to fill the holes and do a bit of paint touch up but it looks really good when done.

    Does anyone have a picture of what you're talking about? Just curious about something to do on a rainy weekend. Thanks.

    Bad Cruiser karma to remove. Those snake blinders are there for a purpose. Just get out your officail Jeep chrome polish and shine them up. Chicks dig 'em too.

    get rid of them the extra weight really slows the 60 down. After all the 2f needs all the help it can get. like everyone else says just cosmetic and help grow rust

    It separates mall cruisers from trail rigs--one trip down a rocky trail and the blinders will be crunched or torn off. Intact blinders == grocery getter :cheers:
